Lovely.  This makes New York City feel like Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

I hope someone will do one for Chicago.

Fantastical Hobbies

Can you imagine the patience this hobby requires?

 This carpenter creates miniature sculptures on the tips of pencils.   

Dalton Ghetti uses a razor blade, sewing needle, and sculpting knife, but never a magnifying glass, to make these incredible carvings that he just gives away to his friends.

How to Deal

When the Number of Men Who Have Hit on Your Fiance Surpasses
the Number of Men Who Have Hit on You

1)  Stomp your foot and announce that your cute ass is wasted on this neighborhood.

2)  Contemplate his cute ass and determine that at least the attention is justified.

3)  Encourage him to obtain his clothes from bus stops, gutters, and lost and found boxes.

4)  Determine that you will purchase all his clothes one size larger from now on.  This has been proven effective in preventing attention in countless Lifetime movies and After-School Specials that I have seen.  Oh, and glasses seem to work wonders in this department as well.

5)  Take it as a supreme compliment, and feel a little sorry for the poor guy (or let's face it-guys) who realize he's going home with you.

Ever feel like just letting loose on an iPhone user?

All I can say, is "well said."  Love this channel.  They have some hilarious rants, all taken directly from real posts on YouTube and other comments sections on the internet and reenacted by hugely talented actors.

Recent Conversation #4

Me:  So did you tell him we would love to have them over for dinner some night?
Him:  Can't be dinner.  Too late for them.
Me:  Oh yeah, well lunch then.  Or brunch sometime.
Him:  Nope, it's going to have to be lunch.  Brunch is nap time.
Me:  Ugh, when people have babies they lose all interest in anything else.
Him:  I think you have to, when the thing only sleeps occasionally....
Me:   "The thing?"  Oh we are so ready to have children right now.
